Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn put on a defiant front as he addressed thousands of Labour supporters at a leadership rally tonight - his final one before the ballot papers are sent out for the vote.
It comes after London's mayor Sadiq Khan said he would support leadership challenger Owen Smith.
- ITV News political correspondent Carl Dinnen reports:
The "magic circle" of Westminster needs to be broken and the views of "ordinary people" heard, Jeremy Corbyn has said in the final leadership rally before the ballot papers are sent out.
Addressing an estimated 3,000 Labour supporters at Ruach City Church in Kilburn, London, the party leader said he wanted to see "decision-making for the millions, not the millionaires".
Ballot papers for the contest, which will see Mr Corbyn go head-to-head with challenger Owen Smith, are set to be sent out this week to the party's 500,000-odd members who are eligible to vote.
The crowd cheered as he said workers in factories, call centres and local authorities had "ideas" on how to change the economy, but were "frustrated that nobody is listening to them".
The principle of democracy has to be ground up.
It is about breaking open this magical circle of Westminster, some of our great universities, Whitehall and the boardrooms who try to control thinking, control ideas and control the way policy is developed.
